Prayer - Reciting a Surah after Surah Al-Fatihah
  • Question:

    During salah, is it mandatory to recite a surah after Surah Al-Fatihah or can one simply go into Rukuh?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    In Fard prayers, the surah recitation or any passage of the Qur’ān is required in the first two units (raka’aahs), whereas in optional, sunnah and nafl prayers, the recitation after Surah Al-Fatihah is required in every unit of the prayer.

    And Allah knows best.
